#TakeItToTheLake

Alberta’s North East is home to transformative travel experiences in wide, open spaces.  It’s where you will find Alberta’s only island-based provincial park, a history that goes back many millennia and communities bursting with entrepreneurs making these towns happening destinations.

Lac La Biche, Cold Lake, Bonnyville, Athabasca and Vermilion here is your invitation to invite friends and family to come enjoy some time on the water.

It’s time to invite those you haven’t seen for a while to come #TakeItToTheLake.

Over the past few years, we @ZenSeekers have been working with Travel Alberta and our destination partners to generate engaging video, editorial and photo content celebrating the region, built to remind you how good life is in North Eastern Alberta.

Please share these stories with friends and family with an invitation for them to pack their swim trunks and get out to see you this summer.  Take ‘em for a swim, get out for a paddle or in the boat to catch some dinner because as you know, the water has a way to regenerate and rejuvenate a soul…and who can bet those sunsets in Alberta North East's wide open spaces. 

For those of us further away, use these #TakeItToTheLake stories to inspire your future adventures - these places are worth the wait if you can’t visit in 2020.

We encourage you to share any of our stories below. Explore what’s possible via ZenSeekers videos and stories to #TakeItToTheLake this summer.
